Cake Decorating Videos, A New Online Trend

It seems that you can learn everything you want to know on the internet these days, yet instructions aren’t always clear or correct. If you are someone who wants to learn to bake or just hone the baking skills you already have, you may turn to the internet for help. If you wanted to try a meringue for the first time, which can be very tricky and temperamental, you would want to be sure you are learning the correct technique to aide your success. One sure fire place to look for baking and cake decorating videos is on the Baking and Cake Art Academy site. They have classes on baking, not just desserts, but breakfast pastries, breads, choux, scones and so much more. Whether you’re an experienced baker with your own successful shop or a mother with free time (who’s ever heard of such a thing?), one of the greatest attributes of these cake decorating videos is that the classes grow with you so you’re never stunted in your growth as an artist.

At Baking and Cake Art Academy, you can watch cake decorating videos right in your own kitchen. The ease of never having to leave home to learn new skills is tremendously appealing for busy people as is the cost with cake decorating video classes starting at just $.99.

With entrepreneurship as a focal point, Baking and Cake Art Academy really puts the icing on the cake. You can choose categories of interest and peruse the baking and cake decorating classes offered for each category. Every class has an introduction that you can read or watch before deciding to enroll yourself in the class.

The blog on the site is updated frequently with pertinent information as well as encouraging stories and helpful tips. Susan Holtz is the award-winning instructor for Baking and Cake Art Academy. She’s created cake decorating videos for those 7 and up. All of the baking and cake decorating videos are 30 minutes or less so you can learn and then implement your new skills immediately.

About Susan Holtz

Susan Holtz is a natural born teacher with decades of professional experience as a baker, instructor, and entrepreneur…and she has a portfolio of accolades to show for her efforts in each of these arenas. What Susan takes just as much pride in though, are her hundreds of graduates now working in the culinary field. Most recently, Susan not only has served as Director of Culinary Arts at West Valley Occupational Center in Woodland Hills, CA (where she created the curriculum and designed the classroom laboratory) and as an Adjunct Faculty Instructor in Cake Decoration at Los Angeles Mission College in Sylmar, CA (where she also developed the curriculum), but she has also just established the Baking & Cake Art Academy, Inc. in order to provide an online forum and laboratory to inspire baking and cake art enthusiasts and professionals everywhere to achieve their highest goals. Entertaining and informative, dedicated and patient, Susan delivers her instruction in a uniquely low key manner, but with a quite evident passion for sharing her wealth of knowledge on baking from her own academic, apprentice and work experience. She really knows how to encourage her students and make the learning process fun so that all levels of students find her teaching understandable and inspiring! Susan’s fascination with cake decorating started in the sixth grade. In those days, it was all about the star tip and the rose nail! Since then she has studied and worked with some pretty impressive names in the pastry/baking/restaurant fields: Mary Sue Milliken & Susan Fenniger of “Too Hot Tamales” fame, Nancy Silverton, Patrick Terrail, Gerard Joel Bellouet, Mark Carter, Francois Vignac, and Joe Ortiz, Kamolmal Pootarakfa, Gordon Hamersley, Hugh Carpenter, Yolanda Chen and LiE Wong. (You can find out more about all these phenoms on!) Ever the student as well as the teacher, Holtz has studied a broad spectrum of specialized international cuisines, including Japanese, Chinese, French and Thai, as well as baking and cake art methods. Susan has earned certification from The Wilton School of Cake Design, then in Chicago (pulled sugar and international cake art methods – Philippine, Australian, English); the American Institute of Baking in Manhattan, Kansas; Joe Ortiz of Gayle’s Bakery in Capitola, California (artisan bread baking); St. Moritz Luxury Chocolates in Beverly Hills; with New York’s Colette Peters (fondant techniques); Roland Mesnier (the very intimidating process of pulled sugar); Scott Clark Woolley (gum paste techniques); Ron Ben-Israel (mold-making for jeweled embellishments); and Johnson & Wales in Denver, Colorado (advanced pastry & bread making).
